Step 1

Soak the badam in milk or water for 4 hours.

Step 2

Peel the badam.

Step 3

Grind the badam into a fine paste, adding just enough milk.

Step 4

Heat a kadai or a thick bottomed vessel.

Step 5

Add the badam paste and the sugar.

Step 6

:- The sugar will dilute the paste and make it runny.

Step 7

Keep stirring for 10 mins on a low-medium flame.

Step 8

Add a tbsp of ghee at a time and keep stirring, until ghee is absorbed.

Step 9

After 8 mins or until the ghee is fully absorbed, switch off the flame.

Step 10

Transfer the contents to a container and mark the shapes.

Step 11

Place a single strand of saffron on each of the cut shapes.

Step 12

:- You can user edible silver wrapper on the halwa instead of saffron.
:- To get yellow color, add the saffron(soaked in milk) to the halwa, while cooking it.
:- You can also add cardamom for additional flavour.
:- Care should be taken to keep on a low-medium flame so as to avoid burning.
